Scholarship for Business, Marketing, or Hospitality Majors Offered by ParkON is a leading airport parking reservation site where travelers can easily find and reserve the best airport parking lots across major U.S. airports.

As a successful online business, we know that colleges and universities are great places to come up with new ideas and spark business innovation. Many students who want to pursue higher education occasionally require extra assistance to cover the cost of their education. Since 2018, we have awarded four creative college students private scholarships.

This year, we’re excited to be able to offer two more creative writing scholarships for the 2023–2024 academic year.

The award amount is one thousand dollars ($1,000.00), which will be applied toward the student’s tuition balance.
